Hello guys!!↵

Greetings from **NJACK**, the Computer Science Club of IIT Patna,↵

We feel very excited to announce our very first edition of **Apeireon** , the annual coding fest of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Patna. The fest will be packed with a plethora of fun events.↵

I would love to thank you all for the huge participation in our Hacking Challenge and making it a grand success,↵

Introducing this time, **Code Golf**, a competitive coding event in which the aim is to solve problems while writing as short code as possible. ↵

Imagine you are giving a coding contest and have spent the last 20 minutes on a problem and finally you submit it and it's accepted. You later find that some top-level coders have done it in less than a minute! What is their secret? Do they have a typing speed more than 20X that of a normal person? The real answer is NO, usually a high speed isn't the result of unusual typing speed, but that of super-short and elegant code. In fact, it often seems that code length is inversely related to coder strength and hence it's good to encourage the writing of short code.↵

**Date** : 
3rd4th April, 2020↵

**Timings** : 9:00pm — 11:00pm↵

**Duration** : 2 hours↵
